Hereditary Sensory and Autonomic Neuropathy (HSAN) is a rare genetic disorder that usually begins in childhood. It is associated with sensory dysfunction (depressed reflexes, altered pain and temperature perception). We report a case of an orphan and adopted girl child with HSAN type IV masquerading as keratomalacia with normal developmental milestones, absent sensation to pain and temperature, bilateral absent corneal reflexes, corneal xerosis, anhidrosis, and trophic ulcers in both hands and feet.
